John was my first cousin and always an important part of my upbringing. He was a tough man with a heart of gold. Rest in peace and sincere condolences to Diane, Annette, and Rocky.

Mr. John was a heck of a guy. I met him years ago when Tad first started working with him. I have a lot of fond memories of him. Him and Tad would go head to head at work but at the end of the day they knew they could count on each other... it is hard to believe that Tad and John are both gone. They died 3 months to the day apart but I know Tad was standing at the golden gate waiting to greet him... Mr. John and Tad Jordan i guess God needed you guys to build some Golden Bridges in Heaven.

Words cannot really express my sorrow for the loss of my first cousin. Too many good memories to list. He was like a brother to me.
Praying for the rest of our family.🙏
Due to COVID, I won’t be there to officially tell him goodbye, but he knows that I loved him very much.
